stevens, i would have relieved you of your post. i think it's inexcusable. >> ifill: democrat dick durbin of illinois accused republicans of applying a double standard. >> i do want to make one point for the record here about whether the american people are told everything right away, in the right way, so that they can be fully informed. and i'd like to refer to five words for them to reflect on: iraqi weapons of mass destruction. we were told by every level of government here there were iraqi weapons of mass destruction that justified a war, the invasion of the united states. we are still searching for those weapons. they didn't exist. thousands of americans lost their lives. we could have a hearing on that if you'd like. >> ifill: while the benghazi attack was the main focus, secretary clinton also turned her attention to upheaval elsewhere in north africa. >> benghazi did not happen in a vacuum. the arab revolutions have scrambled power dynamics and shattered security forces across the region. instability in mali has created an expanding safe haven for terrorists who look to extend the
conversation with democratic senator dick durbin of illinois. i talked to the majority whip just a short time ago. senator durbin, thank you very much for joining us. i think one of the main questions i'm hearing is, what does this proposal mean for people living in this country illegally right now? what would happen to them? >> basically it would give them a chance to go through a criminal background check to make certain that there are no problems in terms of their background, to pay a fine, to pay their taxes, and then they would be here in a probationary status where they could not be deported. they could work. and we watched them as a number of other things evolve and progress under the bill. border security leading to green cards, leading to citizenship. >> woodruff: we hear some advocacy organizations saying, wait a minute. even that level of requirement is going to be a disincentive. they're not going to want to sign up if they have to pay a fine and so forth. >> well, i'll tell you. that's going to be part of it. we believe that these people who have lived here for so many years in f
like to thank the democratic leader dick durbin. there has not been anyone in america who has fought harder for the so-called dreamers that -- than dick durbin has. and he will continue to be -- have the gratitude of many americans. my friend senator rubio who obviously is a new but incredibly important voice in this whole issue of immigration reform, senator menendez also played a key role and, of course, senator graham, who is uncharacteristically absent from this gathering. as senator schumer mentioned, it is the first step in what will continue to be difficult, but achievable. and i don't think i have to remind anyone the last major attempt was over six years ago. now we will again attempt to commit the remaining resources needed to secure the border, modernize and streamline our current immigration system, and create a tough but fair path to citizenship for those here illegally. and i would like to testify again, security situation, along the southwest border, is not perfect. there remains several areas, particularly in arizona, where people's homes are being invaded, where drug
ryan and dick durbin and their opinions on what the president needs to do going forward. >> the green line is historic tax rates, how much we raise in taxes and the blue is how many increases president obama is calling for. the red is where spending is going. spending is the problem, revenues are not the problem. if you keep chasing them they will hurt economic growth, shut down the economy and won't get the budget balanced. >> what i heard the president say was programs like social security and medicare and med aid critically important for our future and we need to have a bipartisan commitment to make them work. bob and i have been in a lot of meetings talking about deficit reduction. we need reform in the programs that mean they will live on to serve future generations. that's the message i took from the president. >> referring to bob corker to the left of the screen. the president has a full plate. not just the budget but the issue of guns, and this week he heads to las vegas for a speech about overhauling immigration. so the second term is already kicking off with plenty on his pl

cain, marco rubio, jeff flake, lindsey graham, the democrats, chuck schumer, dick durbin, michael benn bennet, robert menendez. probably the most controversial part will be all of these folks here in this country illegally under this proposal, should it pass, would not be asked to leave the country. they would have a path to citizenship, a path to being legal and that, of course, the devil is going to be in the details on this. but that is going to be the test, whether conservative republicans who have been against this for a long time, whether they can sign on to it. >> we'll get a chance to listen to what the president has to say on this, as i mentioned, tomorrow in las vegas. chuck todd in washington. thank you very much. >> you got it. >>> let's check in with natalie morales with the days top stories. >> good morning, savannah and matt. >>> violence raging on the streets of cairo for the fifth straight day this morning. eamon . >> reporter: clashes taking place between protesters and police, as you mention ed, for the fifth straight day. all weekend long, intense fighting in the city of a
